Hi there,

You can deduct healthcare expenses from your taxable income (for Swiss income tax purposes), but only those which are not covered by health insurance or accident insurance.

For example, you can deduct health insurance deductibles and coinsurance payments from your taxable income.

However, there are limitations on what part of healthcare expenses is eligible. You can find detailed information on this topic here.
